time trends in sport-caught great lakes fish consumption and serum polychlorinated biphenyl levels among michigan anglers, 1973-1993.polychlorinated biphenyls (pcbs) remain public health concerns because of their persistence in the environment and their potential health impact. we linked data from three mixed cross-sectional/longitudinal surveys of michigan anglers conducted by the michigan department of public health in 1973-1974, 1979-1982, and 1989-1993 to examine the association between sport-caught fish consumption and serum pcbs. the reported weight of fish consumed declined over the three surveys (median 40, 38, and 31 ...200111351711
body burden levels of dioxin, furans, and pcbs among frequent consumers of great lakes sport fish. the great lakes consortium.dioxins, furans, and polychlorinated biphenyls (pcbs) are toxic, persist in the environment, and bioaccumulate to concentrations that can be harmful to humans. sport anglers may be exposed to these residues via consumption of contaminated great lakes (gl) fish. the health departments of five gl states, wisconsin, michigan, ohio, illinois, and indiana, formed a consortium to study body burden levels of chemical residues in fish consumers of lakes michigan, huron, and erie. in fall 1993, a telepho ...199910092416
fish consumption and other characteristics of reproductive-aged michigan anglers--a potential population for studying the effects of consumption of great lakes fish on reproductive health.there has been considerable interest in the benefits and risks of eating great lakes fish, particularly with regard to reproductive health. we report the results of a survey conducted from 1993-1995 among michigan anglers. the survey was designed to identify a reproductive-aged cohort of persons who consume high or low levels of great lakes fish in order to study the impact of polyhalogenated biphenyl (phb) compounds and other toxins on human reproduction outcomes. using fishing license data obt ...19968843552
